Does anybody know if CA is out of business?

The couple of places I used to get them said they stopped receiving business from them and their website has been out for some time now.

I still see some sites selling their cheaper "generic" socks but the fancies seem to be disappearing?

I heard that they closed up shop this last spring. I can't remember what the reason was.

Ah well... my all-time favorite socks are their mustard yellow "argyles" with just a few diamonds scattered randomly across the sock.

I'm sorry about this as well. I bought some from Chorse123 and Skefferz, and they're really fun.

Bump. In case you guys haven't found out yet, Carolina Artisans is back in business under a different name. I stopped into my local menswear shop who used to carry the line yesterday and was surprised to hear that he bought every design from her new line. He was glad to help her out in doing this and said she was in tears of happiness when he told her he would buy every design she had. She still does the cool little caption-quote things on the bottom of the socks. I bought a pair, but the new name slips my mind at the moment. I will post it up here once I get home and look at them. Anyway, just wanted to spread the good news!

How do you feel about spending money on non-essential goods during the Covid-19 crisis?

  • I don't want to spend money at a time of economic uncertainty, even if I could afford it.

  • I feel compelled to spend to help small businesses that are struggling.

  • I reduced my budget for non-essential goods and I'm not spending at the moment.

  • Not much has changed for me and I'm still buying stuff I can't afford.
